I missed you SparkPeople!
Wow, i can't believe it's been probably 6 months since i've been on SP. I tried to log in the other day to check calories in a recipe and couldn't get in. I was soooo afraid that i was booted off for in activity. All my tracking and 50+ lbs o... Read more
Supreme 90 - one month down. AND MY BIRTHDAY!
OK, i dont have a lot to post about Supreme 90, i did do a few more workouts and am back on track. I'm not really counting my weight for today - since i ate (awesome) Lebanese food last night and cake and ice cream (wahoo), so i'm sure it's jus... Read more
Supreme 90 - starting week 4!
So last week was Holy week to Easter, which meant church EVERY night. I only got in ONE Supreme 90 workout. Oh well, church was worth it. Now though, i have an ear infection. I really miss my workouts! I can't wait to get back into it. Tom... Read more
Supreme 90 - week 3 (?) and Happy Easter!
Ok, so i put the ? mark in the title because i dont know if you can really count this as week 3 of Supreme 90. I believe i'm only on "day" 11 of the program because (like usual) life got in the way. It is not for lack of trying!!! With Easter... Read more
Supreme 90 - week 2
Well, i was so excited to weigh in this morning... one full week of Supreme 90, doing all the exercises and eating right... and i gained. Yep. What? So frustrating. I think the exercises are great, and i even learned some moves i've never se... Read more

Maybe working out really does make you gain weight...
I've seen articles on MSN, Time and our very own SP with the "insane" idea that working out is what is making Americans fat. Sounds soooo absurd! Americans are working out more now than ever (i'm going on memory here, so dont quote me), yet we... Read more
15 things i like about me...
I needed a challenge for a mini-BLC i'm running and since i have been a bit down in the dumps i decided this weeks challenge was to write 15 positive things about yourself. I think i came up with a pretty good list (and in a short time!) and i ... Read more
I MUST Stop Gaining!!!!
OK, so back on Nov 6 I wrote a blog about losing 60 lbs! What a milestone (recap - i lost 45 lbs in 8 months, then took another year to lose the next 15). I was only 10 lbs or so from my goal. Fast forward to today, and the scale has been cre... Read more
Daily Status = Daily Affirmation
In my favorite little SP team (Go Golden Goddesses!) there is a sticky thread called Daily Affirmation. We are all encouraged to write a positive thought about ourselves daily. It was pretty easy and great at first, but then i started to run o... Read more
Totally stepping out of my comfort zone - and winning!

To quote Fat Bastard...
"I eat because i'm unhappy, and i'm unhappy because i eat". Oh, the wiseness of Austin Power's Fat Bastard. I'm in such a funk lately, and this quote seems to sum me up. We haven't gone grocery shopping in forever, so we have nothing fresh in... Read more
Ghosts of (fat) Christmas Past
I'm having trouble doing a collage on my new mac, so i decided to just post the pictures in a blog of the difference from the last 3 Christmases. What a difference in the pics from in front of the tree. I'll tell you, the first one from 2007 r... Read more
